You are invited to apply for "Foundations of Christian Leadership" at Duke Divinity – a program which helps new and emerging leaders of church institutions explore their gifts for leading in the church; develop their capacity for effective, strategic, and theologically wise leadership; and examine what it means to be a Christian leader in a Christian organization.
Foundations of Christian Leadership is designed for people who are directing significant programs or services within a Christian ministry. In particular, this experience will most benefit leaders who have been in their current position no more than three years and who have responsibilities which include recruitment, marketing, supervising, and budgeting. This could include associate and lay ministers who work in congregations with a minimum of 600 people in weekly attendance, as well as program or project directors within institutions.
Thanks to the generous support of Lilly Endowment Inc., scholarships are available to help cover program costs (participants will be responsible for their travel costs).
The first application deadline was June 1, 2010 and although early applications will receive first consideration, registration is still open. Once program capacity is reached, however, registration will close. Applications will be reviewed in June, July and August.
